  1. Maybe I try participating in the lottery. Only 6 numbers out of 49. Only a chance of 1 in 140000000 for winning the jackpot. It's more likely I get killed by a rogue falling coconut or a shark or a lightning bolt.

  2. It snows and rains at the same time. Warm enough for rain, cold enough to snow, the worst of two worlds.

  3. Starting watching Brooklyn Nine Nine. It's the better The Office just for the fact it is not pure cringe and it has Terry Crews.

  4. @scribus Haha. It's not often that it hails at my place. But every time my father tells me to drive the car under a bridge because he fears of hail damage. And I tell him that when it starts to hail heavily it's already too late.

  5. @scribus Coincidentally it snowed here too but the snow remained and left a 1cm thick layer on my car. And today I had to use the car. Luckily it was already starting to melt so removing it was quick. I'd like to see how you react when 3mm diameter hail falls down from the sky.

  6. I try to win an auction for a cheap PC monitor. I want to put it in my cellar and tape an unused raspberry pi on the back. I want to have a ready-to-go solution for my CNC router. The last times I had to use my laptop. If I won't win the auction it isn't a big deal. I aim 15€ (incl. shipping). The chances are very low but I'm feeling lucky.

  8. @scribus It's also not fun being almost a victim of being run over. I can count about a dozen of events when I or the driver weren't paying attention. 3 were last year from suffering neighbour-induced insomnia.

  9. @scribus Due to the lack of projects that I want to make, and a lack of projects in general that involves my interests and expertise, I had to take this to keep me billable to clients. I shudder to the thought as well but it pays even when I get no call.

  10. 16 hours until my on call duty ends and thus my week long paranoia. Literally I couldn't poop without having the fear someone calls. At least the paranoia gives me a modest extra more to my bank account.

  11. I just found out that a shop in my city is offering poutine. I always wanted to try poutine even when the offering is not genuine Canadian. The shop offers delivery but in my experience potato fries lose their texture and crispiness very quickly. It's now on my list on things to do when everything gets better.

  12. Fixed my roller blinds with the power of 3d printing. There is a string with plastic beads for moving the blinds up and down. However this string has two ends and the original part that kept the two ends together broke. I 3d modeled a screw, cut it in half, and embedded a negative of the bead string in there. Further I modeled a nut for the screw. With that I could capture the two ends within the screw and the nut holds everything together.

  17. I have on call duty this week. The worst thing is the fear of being called in the middle of the night and then solving the technical emergency remotely. I'm also quite inexperienced with the system which heightens my fears.

  18. Seriously. I wanted to go swimming as part of not going to be fat(ter).

  22. I have the ominous feeling that Trump will be silent for a short while (a few weeks) and then turn up his usual rhetoric undermining Biden from the side lines. Through which means I don't know.

  23. I jumped in and out of a live stream of the US presidential inauguration. That was quite an act. A show, more like it. Most of the time was watching people arrive and take a seat. Obviously I was skipping that doing other stuff.

  24. I pulled the trigger on buying the bandsaw. My mother wanted to cut something in a particular way and it was reason enough to finally buy one. A Proxxon MBS 240/E.

  27. I bought a new pair of earphones and they are fantastic. However they are so good that I can hear the crappiness of my phones DAC. In quiet sections I hear so much "sparkling" noise that it's somewhat distracting.

  29. Finished watching Disenchantment. It was alright. I didn't enjoy its scattered way of picking up and dropping plots. Elfo and Luci have improved.

  30. @scribus Pizza was also a problem for me. Thankfully I haven't burnt myself with pizza (and its cheese) for a long time. Those burns last for days. Whenever I make or buy pizza I am paying attention to the amount of fat and cheese it has, which are always the culprit. So in the case of making pizza myself I cover the pizza lightly with cheese that that there is not a thick layer that can keep the molten lava hot long after it's out of the oven. I like thin and crispy pizzas anyway. The more cheese and fat the soggier they are and the harder the slices are to handle and eat. I bake my pizzas such that the bread is stiff enough the pizza (slice) can hold up itself.
